More cushions from scraps

Whew, I have used up all my cushion forms, if not all my scraps. And I am getting pretty good at doing piping! It all takes practice, and these cushions have been good for that.

Some leftover hand pieced nine-patch blocks form the centre panel.

The centre panel is a scrap of printed fabric that I picked up at "trading day" at our quilting group.
